Causes of Hair Loss in Women
Many conditions and situations serve as causes of hair loss in women. Most are treatable, but not all of them. Understand the symptoms of each to see if you are currently suffering from one of them.
Also known as baldness, or specifically as female pattern baldness when it happens to women. It is hereditary, which means that you inherit it from one or both of your parents through genes.
The condition causes hair follicles to shrink over time, which leads them to no longer produce hair. Thus, it is the actual cause of baldness.
Seen in people that sport tight hairlines from long periods of time. It damages the hair follicle by pulling it continuously, so much so that it can lead to permanent loss of hair follicle and, therefore, permanent hair loss.
A condition that causes hair loss in small, coin-like patterns. It’s an autoimmune disorder that causes your immune system to no longer be able to differentiate between your cells and viruses.
It will attack your hair follicles since cells are constantly dividing to produce hair there. The hair falls as a result. Lupus is an example of this. If the condition is under control, the hair usually grows back.
Diseases such as ringworm can cause it. Also, poor hygiene in the scalp can trigger it. Hair follicles will get inflamed and fall until curing the condition. Oral medication is available for this.
Iron-deficient people usually lose hair at various rates; thus, it is necessary to have your regular intake of iron daily. Shellfish, organ meats, and spinach are some of the best sources. Iron supplements can also help you with this.
Conditions that reduce the levels of oestrogen in the body and/or increase the androgens trigger higher chances of hair loss. Childbirth, menopause, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and hypothyroidism all lead to this. The hair usually grows back once the condition is under control.
